College football recruiting is, in many ways, a ridiculously silly game. That’s why we like when certain coaches and institutions embrace the absurdity and have some fun with it.
Enter Bryan Harsin and the Boise St. Broncos football coaching staff. Petersen and his crew jumped on horseback to announce their intent to scour Idaho and make its best Broncos.
What else would you expect from the pioneers who came up with blue turf and stuff like this on the field. Seriously, I WILL use every opportunity on this blog EVER to share this clip AGAIN. WATCH IT. SERIOUSLY?? SERIOUSLY!!??? Hook and lateral. Halfback pass. AND statue of liberty.
Still, the most memorable football game I have ever seen.
Anyway, the Broncos are embracing the same spirit with recruiting. From someone who works in marketing professionally, I love it all. Simple. Cost-effective. Built for social. Hey Idaho, the cavalry is coming for you.
I honestly hope others pick up on this trend. I want Trojan soldiers storming into southern California homes swords at the ready. Garishly costumed duck coaches waddling around the Pacific Northwest. Devilish staffers branding pitchforks across the desert. Little leprechauns hopping mischievously throughout the Midwest. Let’s get it going. Give me some spice.
